Eduardo Galán - Huawei Cloud

As I once roamed the vast, twinkling cosmos from planet to planet, my journey brought me not just close to stars but also to the discovery of the expansive clouds—not of the sky, but of computing. For over twelve years, I have sailed through these digital clouds, steering through their complex architectures and vast networks with the same passion I reserve for the roses of my home planet. In this cosmic adventure, I’ve grown particularly fond of the Linux universe—a place of freedom and flexibility, where one can craft their own galaxies. But beyond this, my travels have taught me the art of cost optimization, ensuring that every bit of resource is as valuable as a drop of water on my tiny planet. What truly thrills me is standing at the crossroads where technology shakes hands with sales. Here, I have learned to translate the intricate language of tech into the simpler, sweeter dialect of human connection, enabling businesses to thrive under the shelter of the clouds. Together, let us explore the boundless possibilities of IT and cloud computing, where every challenge is an adventure and every solution a step closer to understanding the universe.
